Because I know you were thinking, “Hey! Isn’t it time for another episode of The Batcave Podcast?”
Yes. Yes, it is.
Host John S. Drew continues with his ongoing review of the classic 1960s Batman television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward. For the second season’s twentieth story (and 40th, 41st, and 42nd episodes overall), he’s joined by professional photographer, Bat-fan, and co-moderator of the 1966 Batman Message Board, Ben Bentley, as they discuss the return of the Penguin in “Penguin Is A Girl’s Best Friend,” “Penguin Sets A Trend,” and “Penguin’s Disastrous End.”
From John’s write-up:
“It’s another three-part adventure story as The Penguin and Marsha, Queen of Diamonds team up with a scheme that could only happen in Gotham City. For some fans, this is another example of where the show has been failing in its second season, but as John and his guest discuss, there are a number of elements that elevate this story if one looks closely enough. In some respects, it has the markings of a first season episode and at the same time, it’s got some of the goofiest bits you would find in the third season episode.”
